What happens if I pass my test?

To pass the test you need to achieve 75% correct answers.

Once this is complete you will receive a pass certificate which you will need to add to your British citizenship or UK settlement application.

It is advised that you make copies of this pass certificate as you will only receive one. In your application to the Home Office you will need to send the original. If you lose this letter don’t panic! You don’t need to take the test again but ask for another pass certificate to be sent to you.


What happens if I fail my test?

You must wait 7 days until can book onto the test again. Be mindful that if you fail the test then you will need to pay for the test again.

You can apply for the test as many times as you like.

Also if you were to buy our online training material and fail then you will receive a full refund. You can buy the full practice questions here.
